Columbia Northwest Corner Building
The Northwest Corner Building is the latest addition to Columbia's Beaux-Arts campus designed by McKim, Mead, & White. It departs boldly from the predominant style of the campus with a curtain wall of glass and expressed aluminum sunshades enclosing laboratories, offices, and classrooms as well as a library, an auditorium, and a café. The 85,000 sq. ft. of curtain wall consists of double-height glass-and-aluminum units and custom-profiled anodized aluminum rainscreen panels. Despite the heavy demands of the laboratory space, the project achieved LEED Gold certification.
A modern addition to the historic Columbia University campus, this multidisciplinary facility is primarily clad in anodized aluminum rainscreen panels that articulate the building's truss structure.
